Two days of Travel

Where Are We Today
Wentzville Missouri

We now have two days of travel under our belts. We left "The Ridge" at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning. After stopping for propane and diesel fuel in Durham we were on our way towards Sarnia/Port Huron, crossing into the states at 1:00p.m. After about half an hour we were thru leaving some of Clemson's dog food because the customs officer said it had meat by products and he couldn't see where it was made.  I'm sure ifg he looked hard enough or let me find it, he would have seen it was made in the U.S. of A. We bought the same dog food here at a Walmart that night.

Walmart @ Ft Wayne In.
We arrived at and stayed in the Walmart parking lot at Apple Glen Blvd in Ft. Wayne In at 5:45 p.m. A total of 421.5 miles for the long good day of driving.
We purchased our Verizon Ellipsis Jetpack FE46, activated it and are all set for internet.

On our way by 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning for another 400 miles arriving at another Walmart in Wentzville Mo. just outside of St. Louis.
That's a total of 822.3 miles averaging between 10.5 and 11.2 miles per galllon. Very pleased with the performance of the truck (Ford F350, diesel. dual wheels and the trailer) with the miles we have driven so far. Even though it has been four lane roads, there have been some rough areas, shaking things up in the trailer pretty good. Broke two door catches on the cupboard door to our control panel.

Tomorrow, Wednesday we are heading for Grove Ok. to one of our time share camp grounds for a couple of days of R&R.
That's it for now, thanks for following along, until the next time take care.
PS: the temperature when we got here tonight was 70 F.
